How do I find friends on Duolingo, that don't appear in the search bar for friends?

I know my friend's username and profile picture, but I can't seem find them when I search for them. I have another question, can you add a person in the club you're in to friends through clubs? If anyone can, please help me!

They should appear in the search bar. The only reason they wouldn't is if you misspelled their name. Remember it has to be exact, with capitals and numbers and everything. (I know, Duo's search bars stink.)

I typed their name the way their username had it in the club, but I still couldn't find them. Thank you though!

Thank you! But, I clicked on that link and it said, "Error 404" "You cannot go to this page"

Error 404

Sorry, the page you were looking for doesn’t exist. Try going to Duolingo.com, or follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

you must replace

thatusersname

with the other user's name.

Thus if the user's name is

someperson

it should become

http://www.duolingo.com/someperson

Again you must put it in the address bar in your browser, then replace it with the correct name otherwise it will not work.

And it should be exactly that other users' name. So if uppercase, lowercase letters and so on it should be exactly typed or copied there.

I tried that and it showed a different person

If it shows a different person then check the user name very carefully, because this method works.

If it again goes to the other unexpected user, then you do not know the correct user name.

E.g. if available, check in your email inbox for the old emails from this user to double check the correct user name. Then copy/paste that user name so that you are sure it is correct and not introducing typing errors that way.

E.g. your user name is truebratcher, thus if you create this URL and click on it it will move to your homepage:

http://www.duolingo.com/truebratcher

You see that works.

it said error 500.

There are problems with the computers of Duolingo at this moment. More users are complaining about it.

It should be temporary.

Just try again (if it still does not work try again later).

1) So search in your GMail or Yahoo mail or other for the old messages.

2) Otherwise search in http://www.duolingo.com E.g. click on the link 'Discussion' in the menu. Then in 'Search' fill in your username (=truebratcher). Then you will find some emails. Maybe you find the correct user names in there.
